    Really?
    I wonder who determines if an EMC SoFT is required and who performs it?

    In the AF? Damnifiknow. Really, those guys don't even speak HERO, and we at Pax do a lot of EMC stuff for them like they do environmental stuff for us. But given the oddball nature of this thing they were doing, who knows.

    The airworthiness officer decides if one is required.

    Many times testing is just flying the aircraft in a slightly different manner or determining suitability for a different mission than originally intended. Testing is often quite mundane sounding and people not involved in it would think "they didn't already know that"...
